Small Funny World Athens

Its central location makes it the perfect spot to stay in the city! It's close to everything so volunteers can reach almost all points of interest on foot! The flexibility of the management makes it possible to be creative and contribute to the hostel's growing personality! The experience becomes this way richer and more interactive!

Both myself and the staff are laid back, willing to do our best for the hostel, but at the same time wishing to enjoy the process! Volunteers will be treated as part of the team, more than welcome to contribute in any way possible and to have fun with us at the same time!

Ioanna and her mother are very kind. They provided me the working schedule in the beginning of the week so I could plan my days. The work was very simple and I had a lots of free time to visit the city. The hostel’s location is perfect, it’s a walking distance from most of the tourist attractions and there are many bars on the neighbourhood. It has a nice rooftop where we can meet other travellers or just chill by ourselves. However the kitchen is not well equipped at all, it really needs a improvement. There were some weird older men living there that made me uncomfortable sometimes.

I had a great experience! Working at the reception was quite easy and interesting, I had contact with guests from all over the world and the schedule was great - Ioanna would send it to me every Sunday and was super open if I needed to change something. We had a great communication, I could ask her anything anytime, she is very polite and helpful. Ioanna's mom, who works other shifts at the reception, explained everything to me and we made a great team! The hostel is great, spacious, nice rooftop, really really well located - I could visit any touristic spot walking max 20 minutes! Loved it!

I had a great time at Small Funny World. The staff was amazing, they truly embraced me. The tasks are easy and the schedule very flexible. I learned new skills and enjoyed so much :) I had problems with bed bugs and also I guess the kitchen could be improved (but you can prepare a basic meal). Thank you for everything. I'm gonna miss everyone.
